For several weeks Firefox crashes when I close it down for the day. Firefox error message box sends crash report. Today I got I think from Firefox: please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". <configuration>

   <system.web>
       <customErrors mode="Off"/>
   </system.web>

</configuration> Then there's a second file it says to add. Umm, where/how? The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL. <configuration>

   <system.web>
       <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
   </system.web>

</configuration> Okay, but under ProgramFiles>Firefox there are several folders and none of them say "root" so where am I to create said file and how do I get it there? And then what? I sure don't want to crash Firefox any more than it does as it at least still works.

Hi. Today I was having trouble with Firefox being sluggish and crashing/freezing every time I played a Facebook game. It kept telling me to download the updated flash which I have done about 6 times today. It still will not recognize I have it. I looked in my control panel under Flash and I see the following: Active X version 15.0.0.0.152 NPAPI plug in version 15.0.0.152. PPAPI plug in version not installed. (I looked that up and it seems that is not for my Windows XP. The flash player I installed was 15X32_mssd_aaa_aih(i).exe. That is the manual I was asked to download on support.mozilla.org...then it gave me a specific plug in. Even though I knew I had it, I did attempt to download the plugin. It gets to 66% download complete then error application in use occurs (because I already have it) and it automatically opens Window IE to retry. I know for a fact I have the most updated version. For some reason Firefox just will not recognize it. I've restarted my computer. Earlier I reset Firefox and regave permissions on my plug ins. I have honestly done ever single fix I can do. Help please. I am going to lose my religion if this aggravates me any further! Thanks y'all. Oh and as you can see down there, it is saying I have Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 12.0.5.146 which is not true. My control panel, Flash section disagrees and says I have 15.0.0.152.

Attempted to forward an email, but what should be the Send button is only Send Later. Can't find a way to change that. Ctrl-shift-return doesn't change that setting. The dropdown choices of Find/send and Find/send later are grayed out. I don't know how this got set to Send Later.

I occasionally get those annoying popups that will not let you close the window without answering a prompt. In my experience it is best to kill the firefox process rather than answer the prompt (who knows what will happen when you click that button). However, when i use task manager to end the firefox process, the next time i start it it immediately restores the previous session, loading the same popup window, which means I can never close that window...

I have the startup option set to "Show my homepage" (it is obviously not respecting this setting)

This is a change in behavior... It used to be the "Oops there was a problem" page loaded after you killed the firefox process, which was perfect because I could choose to restore what I wanted.

Is it possible to configure firefox to ALWAYS show the home page on startup?

"This Connection is Untrusted You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do? If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided.

I can usually click text-links, but button links are unclickable since the last update. For instance, buttons like the one that says "Post Question" will not work on firefox. I had to switch over to Opera just to be able to click links. What has also been happening more often since the update is firefox is constantly freezing, turning white and saying "Not responding".

I was able to use ebay last night without any problems. But today it does not work.

When I try to go to http://www.ebay.com I get the "The connection was reset" page and I get this in the URL bar: "https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?SignIn&UsingSSL=1&siteid=0&co_partnerId=2&pageType=2050601&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2F".

When I click "Try Again" It either reloads the reset connection page or I get "waiting for signin.ebay.com" at the bottom left for a while then it takes me to the account sign in page on ebay.

If I click the link to ebay.com on the page I go back to the reset connection page, if I try to sign in I go to the reset connection page and this goes in the URL bar: "https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?co_partnerId=2&siteid=0&UsingSSL=1".

I can go to ebay.com using Chrome but if I go to the sign in page I get "This page is not available"

What gives?

Clicking a link in e-mail (MAC Mail) will open FF and direct to page, IF Firefox is closed. Fine. However, if FF is already running, clicking the link only brings FF to the forefront, but does not open a new tab, nor does the link populate in the current tab window. The only way to make it work is to right click to get the "Quick Look URL", then open that page.

Right now I have a bright white with hard to read yellow text. Windows 7, newest Firefox. What do I try?

Hi, To see anything but bright washed-out colors and text, I had to change to a dark theme! (NASA Night Launch) But this is as good as it gets, bleached pink (should be black), text still hard to read.

- Web page ok, it's just the chrome (tabstip, address bar and other toolbars) that is messed up. - Only present on one of my computers (with FF32.0.1). - On this computer (laptop), the problem is present on two recently added external displays. (not the built-in, not previously added displays) - Only Firefox affected, no other programs running on my Win8.1update is affected. (other browsers show regular colors/text in tabstrips, toolbars, menus etc. - Problem gone while in Firefox Safe Mode. - Problem remains even if I disable every single add-on, and set "ask to activate" on every plugin.

Any ideas? Hope to be able to stick to Firefox in the future :)

Steps to reproduce:

1. Menu -> Customize 2. Drag some of the extra icons to the top right toolbar (next to the menu icon)

Now, some icons constantly keep disappearing. As a consequence, I need to re-add them quite regularly.

Why are some icons simply not staying at the location in the toolbar where I put them?

Thanks for your help!

my start page has always been yahoo, after the firefox 33 updated itself, the page totally looks weird, its yahoo but not like the classic regular. I can't seem to get it to go back even when I cut and paste the web address out of chrome or explorer, where the yahoo page looks like its normal classic self. WHY is it being changed only in mozilla firefox 33? I know that before at 32 firefox it was regular, when I go into chrome or explorer it looks fine, and yet will not flip back in my mozilla firefox even though it is using same webaddress. Its driving me bonkers, please tell me I am not the only one this happened to ( today Oct.15, 2014) and what can I do to cure/fix and make it go back to the way it was.
